Tip structure for a skin care apparatus

The present invention relates to a skin care device, in particular, by forming a second electrode on the body of the tip for transmitting a high frequency to the skin tip of the skin care device to realize a wide contact area of the first and second electrodes in a limited space It's about structure.

It can be effective by promoting the regrowth of collagen as a method of skin beauty and regeneration, such as non-invasive method.

Non-invasive method is to irradiate the skin with RF radio frequency to heat the dermis layer so that the collagen production is promoted by the temperature of the dermis layer, and the radio wave is irradiated to the skin using the tip with unipolar or bipolar electrode. .

Such a conventional tip is described in the background art of Patent No. 10-1065651, and a plurality of (+) on one PCB on the front end face of the body 1 front of the plastic tip as shown in FIG. The electrodes 6 are provided in a lattice form at regular intervals, and the negative electrodes 2, 3, 4, and 5 are provided along the outer edge of the positive electrode 6.

Therefore, high frequency flows through the skin between the (+) electrode 6 and the (-) electrode (2, 3, 4, 5) to supply a high frequency to the dermal layer.

However, the conventional tip is formed by densely forming the positive electrode 6 and the negative electrode 2, 3, 4 at the distal end portion of the body 1 in a limited region, whereby the surface of the electrode is very narrow and the skin If only a part of the contact is not in close contact with the contact portion, the current is drawn to the contacted portion and excessive current flows, causing damage to the skin tissue.

The present invention is to solve this problem of the prior art, by forming a first electrode on a substrate or a conductor such as a PCB, FPCB, etc. mounted on the tip portion of the tip case, and by forming a second electrode on the tip peripheral portion of the tip case It is an object of the present invention to provide a tip structure of a skin care device capable of providing a large electrode area.

The present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

2 is a view showing the external appearance of the tip according to the present invention, wherein the base 200 having the first electrode 210 is mounted on the tip of the tip case 100 made of an insulator such as plastic, and the tip case ( The second electrode 110 is formed on the outer edge of the tip portion of the tip 100, that is, the edge portion of the tip case 100 on which the substrate 200 is seated.

In this case, the substrate 200 may use a PCB, an FPCB, or the like, and the first electrode 210 may be installed in an area excluding the edge circumference of the substrate 200, thereby providing the second electrode 110 provided in the tip case 100. ) Is insulated by the edge portion of the base material 200 by being spaced apart from each other.

The second electrode 110 is formed to extend to the outer side of the front portion of the tip case 100 may have a wide and stable contact area.

3 is a view showing the shape of the tip case 100 in which the substrate 200 is not mounted and which has not been plated yet, and is formed as a plastic injection molding, and is formed in FIG. 4 before the substrate 200 is mounted. As described above, the front portion of the tip case 100, that is, the portion to form the second electrode 110 is deposited in the plating solution to form the second electrode 110 by plating on the tip portion, the inside, and the outside.

Thereafter, the tip of the skin care device is completed by seating and fixing the substrate 200 on which the first electrode 210 is formed as shown in FIG. 2 to the tip case 110 having the second electrode 110 formed thereon.

In this case, the substrate 200 has a plate shape, the first electrode 210 is formed on the upper surface, and the connection terminal is provided on the lower surface thereof to be electrically connected to the second electrode 110 formed on the tip case 100. The first electrode 210 and the second electrode 110 are connected to each terminal by one substrate.

5 is a view showing another embodiment of the present invention, in which the plating is performed on the inside and the outside of the tip case 100 by completely depositing the plating solution. It is formed on the entirety of the tip case 100 to have a wide and stable contact area.

FIG. 6 is a view showing another embodiment of the present invention. As shown in FIG. 5, the entire tip case 100 is plated, and then the front portion and the second electrode 110 to be used as the second electrode 110 are not used. The rear portion 130 is divided, and the boundary portion 120 is formed between the front portion to be used as the second electrode 110 and the rear portion 130 not to be used as the second electrode and electrically connected to each other. Do not

The method of forming the boundary portion 120 is performed by removing plating of the boundary portion 120 by laser or mechanical processing.

As another method, the tip case 100 may be formed by double injection, and the part where the second electrode 110 is to be formed is injection molded by plating resin, and the rear part 130 is formed by the non-plating resin. By injection molding, only the portion where the second electrode 110 is to be formed may be formed to have conductivity by plating.

In this case, by using only the front portion of the boundary portion 120 as the second electrode 110 to form an area corresponding to the first electrode 210, it is possible to supply a stable high frequency, the rear portion 130 is the second Although it is not used as an electrode, the exterior of the tip may be plated to have a more beautiful appearance than when the plastic injection molding is exposed as it is.

7 and 8 illustrate a second electrode 310 formed by plating on an outer side including the outer edge of the tip portion 300 of the cylindrical case having an open top and bottom as an embodiment of the present invention. The tip case 300 is equipped with a rigid first electrode 320 having a cylindrical body and formed in a shape of a dome or a protruding curved surface, and a stepped portion along an inner circumference of the tip case 300. 330 is formed, and a protrusion 321 protruding outward is formed along the outer periphery of the first electrode 320 so that the first electrode 320 is inserted inward from the top of the tip case 300. 321 is caught by the step portion 330 is seated.

At this time, the first electrode 320 is seated so that the upper surface of the dome or the protruding curved shape protrudes from the tip of the tip case 300, and the outer circumference of the first electrode 320 is inside the tip case 300. The circumference has a size such that an interval 340 is generated, and the interval 340 is maintained by the projectile 330.

That is, the protruding width of the stepped portion 330 is formed to be wider than the protruding width of the protrusion 321 so that portions of the first electrode 320 and the second electrode 310 of the tip case 300 are formed to each other. The insulating space is maintained by being spaced apart by the gap 340, and an insulating material may be filled in the gap 340 as necessary.

In addition, the second electrode 320 may be formed of an electrically conductive metal material or an electrically conductive electrode by plating on the outer side of the base material of plastic material.

In addition, since the coating layer is formed on the upper surface of the first electrode 320 by vinyl or resin, the first electrode 320 protects the skin by indirectly contacting the skin through the coating layer without directly contacting the skin.

In addition, the second electrode 310 may be formed as various embodiments of the present invention described above.
